Civilization 5 crashes often during play

Civilization 5 crashes repeatedly on my system. I can play for 10 minutes but then the system will crash.

I am playing Civilization 5 gods and kings (from the Gold Edition / Steam install).

  • How much unhappiness is generated from cities and citizens?
  • How do I play the “Cradle of Civilization” DLC?
  • Is it possible to win culturally in Civilization V with only one city?
  • What are the requirements for harbors to connect to your trade route?
  • Can I play hotseat with mods?
  • Continue a Civ5 game over internet that started on LAN
  • Here is my system.

    Here is my dxdialog and other info:

    And then my civ 5 configuration

    I also found a lot of people are having the same problem. I don’t really see a good solution in there.

    I found this, there doesn’t seem to be a solution (overheating and civ 5):

  • Should I stop building a wonder if I find a rival is likely to beat me to it?
  • How to skip battle animations in Civilization V?
  • How do I get my units on a ship?
  • Civilization 5 Elizabeth-specific achievement domain?
  • If you conquer a holy city do you take “ownership” of that religion?
  • What changes have been made from Civilization 4 to 5?

    I am running win8 pc I had this problem before here is how I fixed it:

    1. Update graphics driver
    2. Run as administrator
    3. Options->Video Options->GPU Texture Decode->OFf->Restart game

    If it didn’t work:
    4. Options->Video Options->Vsync->OFf->Restart game

    Best way to I’ve found is to

    1) Use directx 9

    2) turn off full screen.

    To solve this problem you can try running the game in DirectX 9 mode. If that doesn’t work there are other solutions that have worked for other people.
